Palestine-Israel, The moment of truth is nearing, but short time considerations still block it*

Anarkismo (en) - Tue, 05/06/2014 - 16:25
The mounting pressure of world imperial powers seems to cause a section of Israel capitalist elite to accept the compromise offered by the Palestinian elite. Another section still want to delay the deal either to enjoy the short term gains or to improve the deal. They think that they can delay the settlement till the November election in the US with out any risk. Mean time the creeping transfer efforts continue mainly in the C areas of the occupied west bank and the suppression of Palestinian popular rebellion. The popular struggle continue both to slow the creeping transfer and to recruit international pressure to quicken the end of occupation. The joint struggle in the south Hebron hill help the Palestinian farmers Tsumud (persistence), in he Sheik Jarakh it help to curb the transfer in the East of Jerusalem. In Bil'in, Ni'ilin, Qaddum, and Ma'asara it help to freeze the murderous suppression of the popular struggle at large.

Seconde analyse de la récente votation xénophobe sur l'immigration
Quelques semaines après la victoire de l’initiative xénophobe dite « contre l’immigration de masse », les positions des divers acteurs apparaissent clairement.

Le succès de l’UDC vient confirmer l’existence d’un bloc politique où une importante fraction de la droite bourgeoise a réussi à capter des secteurs du milieu populaire. Contrairement à ce que veulent nous faire croire les forces sociales-libérales, le vote populaire pro-UDC n’est pas un simple coup de colère, l’expression d’une protestation conjoncturelle, le fruit d’une « com » mal gérée.

Il y a un mouvement plus profond dans le positionnement politique d’une partie des classes populaires. Certes, le vote UDC est d’abord un vote bourgeois, autoritaire et xénophobe. Il s’inscrit dans une conception politique très fortement implantée, et depuis longtemps, dans les classes dominantes de ce pays. Ce qui est grave, c’est que ce courant bourgeois se soit transformé en un cadre d’organisation et de référence stable pour une partie des classes populaires.

Anarchism and the Philosophy of Pragmatism

Anarkismo (en) - Mon, 05/05/2014 - 18:18
Philosophy and Revolutionary Anarchism
Anarchism and the philosophy of pragmatism can add to each other. Pragmatism is explained as a philosophy of active experience and experimental naturalism. Pragmatism advocates radical, decentrlized democracy and industrial self-management, which is very close to anarchism. However pragmatists have often opposed reformist perspectives to revolution. The case for revolution is presented.

In the build up to the 2014 (May 7) elections, politicians – whether from the DA, ANC, EFF, or PAC – have been calling on us to vote. As part of this, they have promised to meet people’s needs, end poverty and serve communities when they are elected. The promises of all these politicians are lies.

Hands Off Venezuela! What Has Been Happening Since February and Why It Matters

Anarkismo (en) - Mon, 05/05/2014 - 05:42
The recent destabilization campaign waged by the right-wing opposition has yet again made Venezuela a darling of the international media. While there is always a deafening media silence when the Bolivarian government wins an electoral mandate, throughout the month of February 2014 viewers were assailed with images of “innocent” student protesters – mostly from the academic bastion of the Venezuelan elite, the Central University of Venezuela – being brutalized by state security forces.
